Shake, Rattle & Roll - Charity Night for SADS/IHF
Twenty one year old Darragh Kelly from Greystones died suddenly in his student accommodation in 2003. He was a popular, fit, sports loving young man with no previous history of a heart condition. Following family screening, not available in this country at that time, his younger sister Eleanor was eventually found to have a condition which can cause an electrical disturbance of the heart rhythm, Long QT Syndrome. She was given life saving treatment and now lives a very normal life with a normal life expectancy.
In 2006 the Mater Family Screening Clinic & CRYP, Tallaght were established to screen high risk families for conditions that can cause SADS (Sudden Adult/Arrhythmia Death Syndrome). The clinics, which are funded totally by charitable donations, have already screened thousands of families.
In the same year, Darragh’s mother Maureen, together with other similarly bereaved parents, formed a support group in association with the Irish Heart Foundation. Their mission is to support affected families and effect change so that others may live. Much progress has been made in the last ten years especially through the Irish Heart Foundation’s Council on Sudden Cardiac Death of which Maureen is secretary.
The Kelly family would like to raise awareness of the fact that up to a hundred young people die of SADS each year in this country and that any family who has suffered a sudden unexplained death of a young person, including SIDS should have their family screened.
